The deck at Pisces Rising.

About This Walk

Let’s meet at Sunset Park, the corner of 4th and Alexander beside the historic train depot that is the Chamber of Commerce.  There is a parking lot nearby, and street parking – but it’s Mount Dora, so plan a few extra minutes if you might need to find parking.   We will walk around downtown Mount Dora, down Donnelley, then over to Elizabeth Evans Park.  From there, many people think the most iconic symbol of Mount Dora is the lighthouse – so we can approach that before heading back to the starting point.   Sunset that night is 8:07, so be prepared if that’s something important to you.

Please wear comfortable shoes, carry water or Gatorade for hydration and check the weather in case you need an umbrella.   Be sure your batteries are charged, and your SD or flash cards are empty! Cell phones are welcome!

About your Walk Leader: Byron Faudie has been a photographer for many years.  He specializes in sports and event photography, but doesn’t shy away from many projects – except notably those little baby kids pictures they wrap them up like a burrito and have the props.     His photos have been published on the cover of Funeral Business Advisor magazine.  Byron has participated in and led Photo Walks throughout Central Florida and is also known for his class, “Phoneography – how to use the phone you have to be the camera you want.”

Winning Picture Selected – Mount DoraAugust 31st, 2022

I don’t know if the system lets people know when the winning photo is selected for a photo walk, so I thought I’d send an update.
Every time I am asked to judge an art or photo event, I enlist the help of a few friends so that I know the process is totally anonymous and fair.
Congrats. to Hector T. for his picture of the Mount Dora Lighthouse being named the winner for the photo walk.
I’ve gone through the process to mark the photo the winner, and hopefully will be able to see if it continues to move up through the process to get some prizes!

Photo walk was super fun!
Future events: I have talked to the Lake County Fair about doing a walk when the fair is in town next April 2023, (somewhere between the 5th – and 15th). If anyone wants to watch my Facebook page, (Https://facebook.com/eSportsPhoto) I will have all the details there when it’s time.

Link to group PhotosAugust 13th, 2022

That was fun! I hope those of you visiting Mount Dora got to see some interesting spaces – and those that are more local got to see some things from a different perspective.

Here is a download link to the group pictures, as well as some B-Roll of photographers at the event today. Everything straight out of the camera. Of course feel free to use any way you see fit, or not at all.

I had fun. Already gathering some ideas for next year.

The link it to WeTransfer. You should get a .ZIP with (I think it’s 15) files inside.

Photo Walk Tomorrow (Sat. Aug 13th)August 12th, 2022

I am so excited that so many people have RSVP to photo walk tomorrow. (The roster is at 20 right now).

Our walk is scheduled to start at Sunset Park, on the corner of 4th and Alexander. The given address is 230 W. 4th Avenue Mount Dora, FL 32757. I set walk time for 6:15, I plan to be there about 6:00ish though.

For anyone not familiar, Mount Dora is notoriously tight on parking. There is parallel parking on most streets, and several small public parking lots throughout town. Our walk goes by Edmonton Court and Elizabeth Evans Park and a small parking garage – all 3 blocks from the start. That’s where I usually park when I go downtown.

I checked Accuweather for tomorrow, and it was actually no help. It basically says, “scattered localized showers” – which can mean anything. As fun as this event will be, perfectly honest, I don’t have a contingency plan. I can use this system to email everyone any changes of plans as needed.

My e-mail address is Byron@eSportsPhoto.net and I have a number for text only: 407-326-6030 if anyone needs to contact me for any reason.

Thanks,
Byron

    Byron Faudie Hey, This is your walk leader Byron! How exciting is it that the walk is less than a week away! We already have 18 people on the roster. (Including someone so excited to join, she's on there twice! - no worries of course). For anyone not familiar, a photo walk is simply a social gather of photographers that meet and explore together. It's usually a very collaborative environment with participants at all levels of photography. What questions do you have before the walk? Leave a comment - the entire group can see and contribute to the discussion.

    Kathy O’Brien Thank you for a great walk. It was fun and I’m looking forward to next year. Kathy O’Brien
